Before we get started today, I wanted to say a big word of congratulations to my fellow Team Axanar members and friends, who won the Geekie Award last night in L.A. for Best Short Film for Prelude to Axanar! You can read my Blu-ray review of the film here (it’s now available for just $35 via the link in the review). If you guys think Prelude is great, just wait until you see what we’re cooking up for the full Axanar feature film next year!

Now then... we’re closing out the week with one more Halloween Hangover Blu-ray review for you: Tim’s look at the AIP Version of Mario Bava’s Black Sabbath (1963) from Kino Lorber. And Tim’s got a great BD review coming on Monday too that just might get you Army of Darkness fans excited. So be sure to check back for it.  [Read on here…]
